What was it someone wrote Rick about the USA and ourselves as 'two nations separated by a common language...'

Probably the same 'someone' who wonders how the Americans get away with driving their cars on the pavement when we already spend all our time dodging the cyclists who persist in using it.

Ken Willoughby received this page from a young space fan today; it just about sums up why he puts on these events. Very touching and quite moving.

TKM said: "We had never simulated this problem because it was so unrealistic. But the simulations we did do... that many told us were unnecessary..."

Not quite true. Read the Apollo 10 simulation anecdote in my book.

Sy, it would appear you need to send TK a copy of your book.
